  • Gunmen kidnap Tunisian diplomat in Libya

  • A Tunisian diplomat was kidnapped on Thursday in the Libyan capital Tripoli, Libya's foreign ministry said, two days after gunmen seized Jordan's ambassador. The weak government has been unable to disarm former rebels and Islamist militants who fought to depose leader Muammar Gaddafi in 2011 and who have formed increasingly powerful and violent militias. A spokesman for the Libyan foreign ministry said it was unclear who was behind the kidnapping of the Tunisian diplomat, the second to have been seized within one month. An official in Tunisia's foreign ministry said: "We cannot confirm that he has been kidnapped but we have been unable to contact him." The same official said the missing diplomat is called Aroussi Gantassi and works as an adviser at the Tunisian embassy in Tripoli.
  • Exclusive: Syria submits more 'detailed' list of chemical weapons

  • A U.N. chemical weapons expert holds a plastic bag containing samples from one of the sites of an alleged chemical weapons attack in Ain TarmaBy Dominic Evans and Anthony Deutsch BEIRUT/THE HAGUE (Reuters) - Syria has submitted a "more specific" list of its chemical weapons to the global regulator overseeing the destruction of its stockpile after discrepancies were reported by inspectors on the ground, officials said. Damascus agreed to give up its chemical arsenal after Washington threatened military action following the death of hundreds of Syrians in a sarin gas attack on the outskirts of Damascus during Syria's civil war last August. A diplomat said questions had been raised by member states at the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) about the details of its chemical arsenal submitted by President Bashar al-Assad's government last year. The officials said the original list had been based on estimates, not exact amounts of toxic agents found in storage and production facilities across Syria.
